What's the best way to upgrade to 18.04?

Currently on Ubuntu 16.04 with WordPress and I tried do-release-upgrade and answered yes to everything. But the site pages were no longer visible after the update. So I reverted back to a previous snapshot.

What is the best way to upgrade without issues?

There’s no silver bullet. You’ll likely have to work through the issues you encounter with the stack post upgrade. You can also start with a clean 18.04, migrate the content of your app there, and test it.
